Most tenuous, 31 March 2017
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

Not one of the better Law And Order episodes. The writers made a very vague connection between two people at one time who were accused of murdering a single mother and snatching her baby.

The baby is found with Wendy Moniz who apparently lost the child she was carrying and was desperate to find another before her husband came home from an extended trip abroad. In fact she tried to snatch another infant from Central Park. The case against her looks most promising.

But there's another factor the former boyfriend of the deceased a real bottom feeding piece of garbage played by Victor Verhaege. Sam Waterston and Annie Parisse have good reason to go after him.

But do they have a good enough case? The connection between the two suspects is most tenuous. Not demonstrated well in the story.
